Frost & Sullivan Conference - Thirst For High Purity Water Boosts The Global Membrane Market

LONDON, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The global challenge of water stress and scarcity has been accentuated by the growing population, progressing water pollution and rapid economic development in the emerging regional markets. This is driving the demand for advanced water and wastewater treatment technologies and solutions such as membrane systems, which has established a $5.5 billion market size in 2012 and one of the fastest growing technology segments witnessing double digit growth rates. The increasing penetration of membrane systems across the water cycle has led to innovative management approaches, the improvement of water supply, treatment, conservation as well as to the much needed rise in reuse and recycling water.

This topic will be discussed in Frost & Sullivan's web conference, taking place on Wednesday, 13 March, 2013 at 3 pm GMT. Environment research analyst Paulina Szyplinska will lead the teleconference and explain how membrane can address the global water challenges by ensuring safe and high quality supply to the growing global population and industrial productions. Additionally, the web seminar will identify future membrane market direction in scope of membrane type, configuration as well as regional hot-spots. It will also help understand why membrane filtration technologies form a promising avenue of research and innovation, especially related to materials and functionality.

Commenting on the market before the briefing, research analyst Paulina Szyplinska confirmed: "Overall, the global membrane water and wastewater treatment market is expected to experience significant growth in this decade, driven by the ongoing focus on high quality drinking and demand for high purity process water in water intensive and critical sectors". The market is fuelled by rising levels of wastewater reuse and recycling, increasing number of membrane-based desalination plants as well as implementation of stricter environmental legislation. The key leading regions of Asia Pacific, Americas and Europe are expected to maintain their strong position in the membrane treatment market with substantial growth projected for Asia Pacific, as a result of rapid industrialization of the region as well as increasing water stress leading to the demand for membrane based solutions.

The briefing will highlight key global trends impacting membrane-based water and wastewater treatment market. It will also present the prospects of membrane technologies development until 2020, including microfiltration, ultrafiltraton, nanofiltration and reverse osmosis. It will highlight market direction in scope of membrane material and configuration, regional market hot-spots, trends linked to end-user segments as well as opportunities related with desalination and water recycling market.
